Homer Laughlin made the original, or Old Fiesta, 6" bud vase from 1936 until 1945. They are easily told apart from later versions in that the old ones, such as the one available here, are a full 6 1/4 inches tall AND have the type I, or very earliest mark such as this vase does, or the type IV mark if later in the original period. The ivory color is considered one of the more collectible of the original colors for this vase and this example is in beautiful condition. Having obviously never been used to hold water or dirt the vase is not only free of damage or repairs, but it is completely free of crazing, making it a very nice piece all the way around.
Thank you for coming by today.
